Question about 2005 Nissan Murano

1 Answer

Loud bang when I hit a bump with my foot on the break. No sound at all if I hit a bump without my foot on the brake. What is this?

I bought the 2005 Murano used. Love it EXCEPT for the crazy loud bang from somewhere under the hood when I hit a big bump with my foot on the brake. If I hit bumps, no matter how big the bump or what my speed is, without my foot on the brake there is no noise whatsoever. My dad thought it sounded like a motor mount, but you should hear that everytime, not just when braking over a bump. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Front End Noise in 2005 Nissan, Maxima

it would not hurt to check rear tire wear due to misalignment
cupped tires will cause a faulty bearing type noise or humming.

SOURCE: a rattling noise

I had rattling noises as well (over bumps and when I reved the engine) and it turned out to be the heat shields under the car. I took out 2 heat shields covering the two cats on both sides AND two rusted out dangling rings hanging from the exhaust coupler (have NO clue what they were for)..This has TOTALLY gotten rid of the rattling noise. Good luck!

SOURCE: High pitched electronic/dentist drill sound when accelerating.

Probably the front differential, your probably hearing the famous differential gear whine. Change the oil, put Lucas for gears in it. You can get a hand operated oil pump to **** it out through the dip stick if it has one. Then fill it with the recommended amount.

SOURCE: 2005 nissan murano sl, with rattling sound when accelerating

I recently experienced the same symptom with my '05 Murano and it was not a fuel problem. The dealer listed the cause as dry axle splines and replaced both front drive shaft assy's. Note that this was done as warranty with no cost incurred by me.

SOURCE: Roaring noise from Rear Wheel when braking and turning

Could be a wheel bearing. Sounds like it is going to break down on you very soon. I would not muck around, just get it fixed. However don't tell the Mechanic you have a broken wheel bearing, he will just change it because that is what you told him / her. Tell him / her you have an intermittent roaring noise from the back passenger side. I made this mistake once and a $1 rubber bush had fallen out of the end of my shock absorber. I got a new bearings though :)

While is my 2007 chevy uplander rear end so noisy?


Could be the exhaust system hitting the frame or body of vehicle when you hit a bump. There should be some wear marks where the pipe is hitting.

I can think of two things not easily seen that can cause a banging when hitting small bumps;
The sway bar end links could be loose or broken.
The rear shock bolts, the lower bolt that holds the shock onto the rear axle, I've seen that mounting hole down there get enlarged, allowing the shock bolt to move about when hitting small bumps, causing a banging sound.
Check those two things out.

I have a 94 cavalier the abs light came on and now i have no brakes the pedal goes to the floor and some kind of noise is coming from under the hood


That sounds like you may have broken a brake line except for the noise under the hood. Unless it is brake fluid squirting up, hitting the hood. Check the inside of all four tires and under the hood on the driver's side below the wind shield. My guess is you are going to find a big oily spot where all of your brake fluid has gone.

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking


my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.
